Jose Conde Y Ola Fresca were fantastic! They had people on their feet and literally begging for more! One guest actually wept about the fact that the party was over and they had to pack up! Jose Conde and the band were real gentlemen and I wish I could have them play for all our parties! This was a fundraiser for the arts and it was a record breaking success! Thank you Jose Conde Y Ola Fresca!!!!!

Jose is unreal! They made our wedding! The wedding was 2 days ago and I'm still having to tell people about where I found them. I went to see them live at S.O.B.'s downtown before they played our wedding and we knew 1 song in that we made the greatest choice! Full of energy and passion, people cant hesitate to dance. We hired them as a 6 pc. band but he has multiple combinations. They did an amazing jazz trio for the cocktail hour. Then all 6 joined forces for our dance sets during the reception. Jose and his band made our NIGHT! Jose you have a fan for life! Please keep me up to date on any new albums you are putting out, I want a signed copy my friend!

Jose Conde was fabulous: he got everyone to dance, including both salsa lovers and those less accustomed. He has an amazing voice, a very tight band, and a great mix of original and classic material. He was also great to work with. We would highly recommend him to anyone!
